Kuala Lumpur, January 4, 2018 – To kick-off the year, Naza Kia Malaysia will be introducing the much awaited new non-national A-segment vehicle, the All-New Kia Picanto. The third-generation All-New Kia Picanto promises to be the most versatile in its class with an untypically futuristic new design, safety enhancements and better performance with advanced technological value-added features to fulfil the wanderlust of today’s Malaysian millennials.
As safety has always been a paramount of the Kia brand, the newest Kia Picanto was carefully crafted with double the proportion of Advanced High Strength Steel (AHSS) as compared to its predecessor. The All-New Kia Picanto also has six airbags strategically
placed in front and at the side of all passengers. Thus, giving parents a sense of security as their children go on exciting road trips with friends.
What’s a road trip without a specially tailored road trip music playlist? For tech savvy Malaysian millennials who need to stay connected at all times, the All-New Kia Picanto has a large ‘floating’ 7.0-inch touchscreen at the centre of the dashboard which seamlessly connects to your smartphone; readily integrated using Apple CarPlay and Android Auto with voice recognition features. Kia Picanto owners can have access to their smartphone functions via the Head Unit’s user interface for music, calls, messages and directions & navigation to ensure safe arrival at the travel destination.
The All-New Kia Picanto is the ultimate travel companion for the adventurous Malaysian youth as it boasts a greater luggage capacity and better space efficiency with its foldable second row seats (60:40 split), totalling up to 1,010 litres of cargo space; a vast improvement compared to its predecessor the 2 nd generation Picanto. You can easily fit your luggage in it as well as your friends’ and loved ones’, perhaps even your scuba diving gear and your entire shoe collection!
